Early selection for cycling stars

Cyclists Elliot Baxter and Andrew Roche have been pre-selected for the NatWest Island Games later this year.

In a change of policy from Team Microgaming Isle of Man Cycling, they have been picked ahead of the usual announcement nearer to the event.

Cycling was missing two years ago in Aland but is set to return to the Isle of Wight in late June and early July.

Former professional mountain biker Baxter won two golds in Rhodes in 2007.

Roche is set to compete at his ninth Island Games, having already notched up a remarkable tally of 21 gold medals.
